“Must go here for above and beyond Mexican food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

This was a second trip to Destilieria, the first trip was 7 years ago on our first trip to Cancun. We had a group of 6 ladies 18-62 and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food, drinks, the service and wonderful view of the sun setting. If you want something a little different from the typical Mexican food but authentic, try the Destiliera and plan to relax spend some time and enjoy the food, musicians, sunset, service and go ahead order the Grande Margarita (I love the Mango one), you will not regret it.

“Excellent food and excellent service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We ate here at the recommendation of our hotel and couldn't be happier. Portions were large, wait staff attentive and the food itself was delicious. Drinks were great also and not light on tequila! We have traveled a lot and as such consider ourselves snobs of sort and this place did not let us down. Highly recommend!!

La Destilleria is within walking distance at 12.6 km is on the lagoon and we saw a crocodile down below. The service was amazing and the food fantastic. We had the special m...ete volcanic bowl with meat, guacamole, cactus to fill your corn or flour tortillas. Prices are very good for hotel zone. Great atmosphere
